4 benefits of Vitamin C in your skincare
It has long been known and proven that Vitamin C is a superhero in the world of skincare, tackling issues such as skin damage, the loss of collagen, and hyperpigmentation. With so many benefits, it is an essential part of our skincare regimes, which is why you will find it in nearly all of our products. So, how is it helping your skin, and why are we so enthusiastic about it? Here’s why…
A youthful, wrinkle-free appearance relies heavily on our bodies' production of collagen. When the amount of collagen in our bodies starts to decline, so does the appearance of our skin. Vitamin C is scientifically proven as an essential substance for collagen synthesis, which improves the firmness and plumpness of skin and helps to slow the ageing process.
CULT51 is all about anti-ageing skincare and, used continuously, the benefits increase. Our Night Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by an average of 41% in 6 weeks.
Vitamin C has long been celebrated for its exceptional ability to help skin retain moisture. Helping to soothe and strengthen your skin, it locks in moisture to give you a fresher, more hydrated appearance.
The Immediate Effects Serum was clinically tested to improve hydration increased by up to 141% in just 12 hours.
REDUCES & PREVENTS PIGMENTATION
Areas of dark pigmentation, often known as age spots, most often appear after prolonged exposure to the sun over a period of many years. Fortunately, it is possible to turn back the clock on these tell-tale signs of ageing. Studies show that Vitamin C reduces the production of melanin by 57% in just four days, dramatically reducing the colour of dark areas of pigmentation, whilst also protecting your skin for the future.

We’re all after that perfect glow that keeps your skin looking young and bright, and Vitamin C is a powerful component in achieving this. Not only does it prevent dark areas of pigmentation as we mentioned previously, it naturally lightens your skin and brings back that radiant glow we’ve all been hoping for.
Using a Chromameter at clinical trials, our Neck and Decollete cream measured an average of 9% increased luminosity after 6 weeks use. To put this figure into perspective, laser treatment only offers 7% improvement here.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is the name you need to know in the ingredient list and it’s always high up in our list which demonstrates our emphasis one using it is high. Whilst the name here sounds chemical, it is the water-soluble form of vitamin C that can easily be absorbed directly onto your body’s skin.
Don’t give up on eating and drinking healthily just because you use the right skincare, as Vitamin C has wider positive impacts on your body to fend off colds as well as healing wounds and maintaining healthy blood vessels, bones and cartilage too. We do all tend to head for citrus fruits but don’t forget Bell Peppers, Brocolli and other greens are also really high in this super vitamin.
